See You in 2015!

I've decided it's time to say "yes" by saying "no."  I'm getting off Facebook for the rest of December, and I'm taking a hiatus from blogging, too.  

It's time to be still.  

It's time to prepare my heart, our family, and our home to welcome the Christ Child.  


I want this Advent to be a holy one.  So, this month, instead of coming up with new blog posts or wasting time on Facebook, I'll be *trying* to imitate John the Baptist.

"He must increase, but I must decrease."  (John 3:30)  

To that end, I have a few goals:
  • Finalize my 2015 Board of Spiritual Directors.  (Thanks for the inspiration, Lisa!)
  • Continue to start the day before the children wake up in quiet prayer.  It's a game changer!
  • Since Advent is the start of a new liturgical year, it feels like the perfect time to create new resolutions.  During the rest of Advent, I'll be re-reading A Mother's Rule of Life and revisiting/revising the 5 P's I came up with last Lent.  Our home, our family, and our hearts have changed since then.  It's time to make some updates!  In case you don't remember, the 5 P's are:
    1. Prayer
    2. Person
    3. Partner
    4. Parent
    5. Provider
I will be making baby steps to start implementing my new resolutions, and I'll share 'em with you once I'm back in 2015.  Until then, I pray that you and your family have a blessed Advent and a Merry Christmas!  Please continue to send your prayer intentions while I am away!
